February morning my car won't start today
I turned the key at 8:03
And the battery passed away
Inside a' my automobile

I want my automobile
I want my automobile
I want to drive it
All around this world

Bride's gettin' married in the springtime
Widow's gettin' married in the fall
I got married in high school
Or I wouldn't of got married at all

I'd be drivin' my automobile
Be drivin' my automobile
Be drivin' my automobile
I wanna drive it all around this world

Everybody said to the new groom
Groom, what ya gonna be
I said, I'm gonna be a symphony
Just as soon as I find a key

To my automobile
I want my automobile
I want my automobile
All around this world

Let's take a ride

Columbus sailed the ocean
Moses parted the sea
Dolores left me yesterday
Well, I think she took the key

To my automobile
I want my automobile
I want my automobile
Wanna drive it all around this world

Now, I held a little bitty baby
I held a woman all night
Whenever I get the hiccups
I hold my breath 'til my head gets light

Then, I drive my automobile
Yeah, I drive my automobile
I drive my automobile
I'm want to drive it all around this world

February morning, my car won't start today
Yeah, I turned the key at 8:03
And the battery passed away
Inside a' my automobile

I'm drivin' my automobile
Wanna my automobile
Wanna drive it all around this world
Go on

It is a beautiful day for a ride
Hey, get your head down I can't see anything
Someone give me a cigarette
I don't want to take my hands off the wheel

We ought to take the air filter off this sucker
So we can see what it will really do
Uh oh, it looks to me like a hospital zone
Everybody get quiet, shh

Don't wake the dead up
We're almost out, hang on, uh, oh here we go
Well, you can just hold it until we get to the next town
